KAL-ELLE JAGGER | LOST IN SPACE
A stunning track by a lady who performs her absolute heart out and leaves it all on the table for us to see. The vocals in this track stitch the sublime production by none other than the fantastic Syst3m Glitch together which serve as a veritable feast for your ears. The narrative of this track is ultimately about holding on to the positive parts of your life and keeping the faith in such troubling times we all find ourselves in. Great work!
XYLE | THE RETURN FROM EXILE
It's been awhile since we've heard from this Electro Artist from Toronto but we needn't have worried at all. He's back, and back with an altogether different sound but at it's heart quintessentially XYLE. It's a club orientated track which conjures images of flinging yourself around a dark club setting with wild abandon and from listening I get the sense that it's that feeling of freedom which stirs at the heart of everything he creates. Enjoy!
EHRAH FEAT POWER ROB | A LITTLE TIME
Aztecs newest signing in EHRAH from Montreal teams up with Marylands Power Rob (Bradley) to deliver a track that's as catchy as hell. At it's very heart it delivers all those little Synth nuances which will no doubt please the purists. I've raved about Robs vocal before but the EHRAH production put it through its paces which Rob cuts through like an aural katana. It's impactful and perfect for those night drives, stream it and see!
TREVOR SOMETHING | I JUST WANT TO DIE
Is this the end of Trevor Something? It appears so. What does not exist cannot die but in whatever guise he returns in or whether he vacates the scene altogether he's left a legacy of work that will set the bar for years to come. This new album 'The Death of' suggests a work that he's always had in his heart to create. The track 'I just want to die' is so cleverly produced I had to showcase it!
DONBOR | REMOTENESS
Donbor serves us all a face meltingly good Album in 'Remoteness' and in fact its the titular track I've chosen to showcase today as it's slaps harder than Will Smith defending his wife. It's the perfect Darksynth track to make you move, if you don't I suggest you check your pulse as you may very well be dead! Turn it up and play it loud you know you want to!
SLEEPLESS NIGHTS | HEARTBEATS
There isn't enough superlatives to describe this track but I'm going to make an attempt. It's absolutely gorgeous. Ethereally refined, this is an entire mood set to music. As refreshing as a cool summer breeze on warm sunny day and ultimately as seductive! Somehow, someway this sounds more grown up, more in tune with the Artists modus operandi in giving you that ultimate retrowave experience of today whilst paying homage to yesteryear!
JACKET. AND GRAYSTARS | TAKE MY LIGHT
A sublime slice of Synth by Jacket. and Graystars. A vibe rich melody that is masterfully produced with the help of another legend in Van Derand. The vocals punch a hole through the Synths which help deliver an overall very pleasing listening experience and practically an insta-buy for me and to be fair on listening it should be for you too!
DEADLIFE | NEEDLE IN MY NECK
A deeply emotional Album for all intents and purposes, you get the feeling that everything else he's done to date was leading to this very moment. The raw and unabashed delivery sets Deadlife apart from the rest of the pack and in wrestling his demons delivers yet another wonderful creation. I could have chosen a number of different tracks on this album but 'Needle In My Neck' shaded it!
VINCENZO SALVIA FEAT LAZER CLUB | BROKEN HEART
Let's face it, anything that Vincenzo Salvia produces turns to gold, now, sprinkle a little Lazer Club retro dust on that and you have yourselves a track to light up the most discerning club floors this side of the Spanish Steps. It's fun and extra-ordinarily catchy and worthy of your playlists. Stream it now!
KNIGHT$ - BOOM BANG BOOM (Mirko Hirsch Extended)
Yes Yes I know, the original track came out in June 2021 but it passed me by and I'm shamed to admit that. HOWEVER the extended remixes dropped a few days back and they are the joyous of mixes that have ever kissed my ears and I love them. Mirko Hirsch Mix stood out to me as lets face it I practically danced on hearing it! Incredible vibes! Worthy single of the week for me!
Some more tracks to be posted next week in the meantime support your favourite Artists and share their work. YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
